iamwe, Anthrax, Foster The People, and More in This Week's Issue

This week, Christina Caldwell brings us the story of iamwe, a Phoenix-based indie rock band. The band's forthcoming record She's a Soldier tells the tale of a 100-year-old Englishwoman. "We're all fighting our own personal wars," the band says.

Anthrax members Joey Belladona and Charlie Belante discuss the band's killer new record, Worship Music, and the...um...complications involving the group's band-name following 9/11, and Lenni Rosenblum talks music genre semantics about the "indie band" Foster the People. We've also got short previews on Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Down, Nappy Roots, Carla Bozulich, and Cheap Time.
